you can do that to smooth it out if you want but it will indeed rust if it isnt re-seasoned. normal use will smooth out the bottom to a mirror smooth flat in time. its a lot of effort for little gain.

the cool factor of cast iron is that the nonstick coating is totally non-toxic unlike teflon coated cookware. if you scratch teflon you gotta toss the pan. the nonstick coating on cast iron is repairable and easily renewable through normal use.

this doesnt mean food wont stick to it particles will burn but the whole wont stick and burn. unless of course you burn the food hehe.

True that. I have stainless steel cookware and cast iron. For me, each has it's place in my kitchen.

Most of my cast iron is Lodge brand and it works just fine. I also pick cast iron cookware up at garage sales as many people just don't really know how to use them.

Lodge is great. My "go-to" cast iron skillet is a Wagner.

I collect old cast iron cook ware. I gave some pices to my kids that were not needed for my collection which they use. I make waffels with a iron made in the early 1900s and also like to use the Danish cake pan. I started using cast iron fry pans when camping back in the 60s , I liked it and start a collection . Now some times when my grandkids who are married and in their 20s go camping I go out and show them how well cast iron works for camp fire cooking.

I personally love cast iron but my wife likes the nonstick stuff. Since we got married and she picked out the cooking equipment I have 1 maybe 2 cast iron pans. The only time they get used anymore is when I pull them out to cook so I have to check on them periodically.
